Basically, I'm a social worker, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. Nothing is more important to me than the people I love. Lucky for me, there are many.
I don't drink, but I don't necessarily care if you do (depending on how and how frequently...i.e. very heavily and all the time probably won't mix well with me; no pun intended).
I was born and raised in Virginia after my parents left Brooklyn, where both landed in their early 20's but where neither was raised. I loved running around outside as a kid...playing capture the flag and hide-and-go-seek in the dark, riding bikes, building forts, and hanging out in the playhouse my dad built above the shed. My siblings were my best playmates. At a certain point, after visiting our cousins in NYC, I realized this is where I wanted to be. About 11 years later I made the move. And after 8 years living in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan, I often think about returning to VA to be nearer to my family and in favor of a bit quieter place...and with a little more space for some dogs, cats. And maybe kids. But I have a great community here that I'm a part of and a job that I love.
